Mike and son were able to fit my repairs in the same day I made my request. When they arrived, they got right to work fixing my back door that was out of whack due to settling. Got the door back in line and replaced the deadbolt and door handle locks. Works better than it has in 25 years. They fixed my patio door latch that also was out of alignment. My bedroom sliding closet doors came off the track and were very heavy. They took the doors out in order to fix the track and lubricate it. I had a couple of additional little projects replacing a part on my microwave and changing a lightbulb in my bathroom fan. They even made a repair to my deck they saw while at my back door. I can't say enough good things about Mike Theodore. He's very professional, knowledgeable and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend his services.
Brandon and his partner shoveled deep snow and ice off the roof of my house and yard after a snow storm that was unprecedented. They did the a good job, are friendly and respectful.
We have worked with Gib for a number of years. He has completed complex renovations as well as variety of structural maintenance. His work product is first rate. Frequently he works unsupervised and always communicates well on his progress. We plan to continue to use his services.
Great experience with Preston Irrigation! I have a 9 zone system with ~45 sprinkler heads that had settled low after years of use. Nate got the entire system working properly and my lawn is looking better than ever. Highly recommended!
I've been using Rich's services for 8 years now. He is one of the most honest, responsible, reasonable, hard working people we've ever met. There isn't anything he can't fix if it has to do with construction. If I owned a large RE development property, he would be Head of Construction/repairs. His knowledge is well extended in RE as well. People should copy his work ethics also.
I've used the McGloughlin brothers for many home projects (new decks, kitchen installations, bathroom remodels, painting, wallpapering) - their work has always been excellent. I would highly recommend them.
I am very happy with the quality of their workmanship that was completed in a timely manner. They completed a two story addition in my Greenland, NH home which included a sun-room and an in home office. I have been enjoying the addition for over 8 years with only a minor issue of a loose piece of siding which was easily repaired within one week of me notifying them.
Robert and his colleagues (family members who work very well together), gave us a very reasonable quote. They did a conscientious and excellent job scraping and painting trim and garage doors for two small outbuildings, did some small carpentry repair jobs, and hung ropes for children's swings, which involved working on a high ladder, taking down some old crossbeams, etc. We plan to hire them again for other jobs around our vacation house. They are easy to work with and open to helping with whatever is needed.

I will need to make the trip over 3 or 4 long weekends. Any suggestions for routing and timing? Cheers Phil (PS: Ideally would like to take her to the virgin islands for winter but dont yet have sufficient bluewater experience. Instead I can take a leisurely trip down the east coast in close reach of ports until arrival in florida). prairiephil is offline Reply With Quote Old 07-11-2009, 09:48 #2 MarkJ Long Range Cruiser MarkJ's Avatar Cruisers Forum Supporter Join Date: Dec 2007 Location: Australian living on Sea Life in New York City!

You better start now as you will be a bit old by the time you get there. I don't know either place. But: go out, turn right, sail till Coast Guard asks if you are going to Cuba, turn right again.

Boat: GAME PLAN, Celestial 48, Center Cockpit Cutter Posts: 36 Interesting situation you have here. Sailing down the east coast on the installment plan. Here are our suggestions. Keep in mind, this is the way we would do it and not everyone sails / travels the same way. In addition, we're going to assume the object is to get to places you've never seen from the water as soon as possible and overnight sailings are not out of the question. Our first leg would be from Boston to one of the several nice anchorages on Long Island such as Port Washington, Oyster Bay, etc. Some excellent anchorages and marinas in this area, well protected and a safe place to leave the boat. Next leg would be to just get through New York. Several marinas in NYC, all expensive. Our favorite is the 79th St Marina on the Hudson River. Pick up a mooring ball and it's cheap. Call ahead to get status on availability. Next Leg would be from NYC to Cape May New Jersey. The anchorage is in front of the Coast Guard base. Fairly protected but not great. Marinas in the area and you should be able to secure dockage for the week. I'd call ahead and book the dockage. This leg will be on the outside so weather is going to be a factor. Leg 4 would be from Cape May to the Chesapeake. Again on the outside. We prefer this to going up the Delaware River and then down the inside of the "Chessie". If you prefer, the "Inside" route through the Chesapeake is fine but I can assure you that you will be seduced by the many stops, anchorages, and places of interest. We spent an entire summer there and didn't see a fraction of it. Fair warning is given,,,, the Chessie is very cool and you may run out of time before you're ready to move on. Leg 5 would be another long one as we prefer to sail outside instead of the ICW. For us it would be from the Chessie to Moorehead City N.C. Choosing your weather here is crucial. Both Cape Hattaras and Cape Lookout can be very nasty when the wind and seas are up. Moorehead City / Beaufort offer several marinas and prices are much more reasonable that back north. In addition, it's a good place for most supplies, repairs etc. Leg 6 is from Beaufort N.C. to Charleston S.C. Charleston is one of our favorite stops. We sometimes pass on some of the others but never on Charleston. Good marinas, good food, good bars, and great people. Leg 7 Charleston to St. Augustine Fla. This is a bit of a reach but we like St. Augustine. Plenty of marinas in the area and the city is cool to visit. If this leg proves to be too much, Brunswick Ga is a good altenative. Not much here. A good marina but that's about it. At night the bugs will eat you alive so make sure the A/C is working. From here on down, it's just a matter of how far you want to make your legs and how fast you want to get to Miami. Keep in mind that not all inlets are recommended for first time visitors. From St. Augie south, we would suggest the following; Port Canaveral (Cape Canaveral) Fort Pierce Lake Worth (West Palm Beach) Port Everglades (Ft. Lauderdale) Miami In all cases, given that you just want to travel on the weekends, we suggest you book your dockage ahead of time. Many of these places are favorites of ours and to just drop in and then leave is a sin to us. Many have some really cool things to see and do so you might want to figure that into your planning. If you've never been to Miami on a boat,,, let me tell you, it's a circus. Nice place to visit but you wouldn't want to live here. Never the less, it is one of the three places on the east coast that we would prefer to have work done aboard GAME PLAN. The other two being Annapolis and Newport. Anything you need for the boat is available in these three places. As for Miami itself, lots to see and do. Several marinas, our favorite is Dinner Key. Anchorages galore and the upper Keys are just a day sail away. Hope this helps, Roger & Aleida GAME PLAN Miami Sailor954 is offline Reply With Quote Old 08-11-2009, 11:02 #4 s/v Moondancer Registered User s/v Moondancer's Avatar Join Date: Nov 2008 Location: Panama heading into the Pacific Boat: Tayana 55 Posts: 965 Sailor954 has it right...I did the trip last fall. 1050 miles if you are a bird and my log shows a total of 1700 miles from Provincetown MA to Dinner Key Miami. Lots of ups and downs in NY, Delaware and Chesapeake. It will take a lot longer than 4 long weekends unless you move 24/7 and sail in any weather. There are also some interesting segments like 'Hell's Gate' and the Jersey shore that require a modicum of skill and knowledge. Sailor's scheme is basically 8 legs...7 + the Florida coast. That is a minimum of 8 weekends providing the weather is good and you don't break down like the rest of us! It really is a 3-4 week trip. Good luck Phil "Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often." s/v Moondancer is offline Reply With Quote Old 08-11-2009, 18:48 #5 skipmac Senior Cruiser skipmac's Avatar Cruisers Forum Supporter Join Date: Oct 2007 Location: 29° 49.16 N 82° 25.82 W Boat: Pearson 422 Posts: 9,459 Just made a slightly shorter trip. CT River to FL/GA border, about 400 nm shorter than the trip you propose. We made three overnight legs outside, the rest of the trip in the ICW. Most days we were up about dawn and set out right after breakfast, stopped about dusk. Took us 14 days to do the trip. To make Boston to Miami in a few long weekends means you'll have to go 24/7 to get even close. Not really practical inside so you will have to go offshore but then you will be depending on good weather. Tight schedule, maybe too tight depending on how long you can make a long weekend. The water is always bluer on the other side of the ocean. skipmac is offline Reply With Quote Old 08-11-2009, 19:21 #6 Captain Bill Senior Cruiser Captain Bill's Avatar Cruisers Forum Supporter Join Date: Apr 2008 Location: On the boat Boat: Endeavourcat Sailcat 44 Posts: 1,927 I left Morehead City at about 0400 on the morning of the 27th and arrived at the sea bouy at St Augustine at 0600 on the 30th. That included a bunch of motor sailing as I had a three day weather window. I did one detour into Georgetown SC for fuel, but should have gone to Charleston instead. Georgetown is way up the bay and in the wrong direction, probably added 3 hours to the trip. You can do Morehead to St.Augustine in a long weekend if you have the weather with you. I chose to go inside at Masonboro and back out at the cape fear river. I do not like crossing Frying Pan Shoals at night especially if the wind is against the stream. When heading south I stay relatively close to the coast to avoid the gulf stream and to get a small boost from the counter current that runs along the coast. It's not nearly as strong as the stream but it beats going against the current. My cat cruises at 7-8.5 while motoring/motorsailing. You may be a bit slower.

I realize I did not estimate the time needed and estimated using ideal conditions speed etc. My goal was to use long weekends (the installment plan) so that I could still keep employed then fly down for weekends thereafter to enjoy the warmer climate and sail rather than deal with the pleasures of a Boston winter. I will take your comments in consideration and come up with a more flexible and realistic plan.
